Serving Those Who Have Served Us at Every Turn
The mission of PTSD Dogs and Tags of Wyoming is to assist people suffering from PTSD/TBI. We are committed to finding and training dogs for companionship and support for PTSD/ TBI victims in their daily living. Dogs & Tags goal is to work alongside therapists to ensure all needs are met, so that the individual and their dog may be successful.
The use of service dogs as a form of therapy for individuals living with PTSD, especially for veterans, is becoming increasingly common. A service dog is at a veteran’s side 24 hours a day to help navigate daily stressors. Some animals come to the veteran pre-trained with a set of commands, while others are trained by the owners themselves. Over time, an owner can rely upon the dog’s instincts for a reality check, giving their brain a break from hypervigilance. The animals can also serve as a social buffer, an incentive to exercise and a de-escalation tool during times of stress.
